    Default Turkish NT 2019

    We booked our place at the WC 2019. So it is fun to speculate about our NT. The team is obviously a shadow of its former self in comparison to last decade. Not really impressed by Osman contrary to general view, he was way too inconsistent through the season, hopefully he will show a little bit better performance in NT. Korkmaz couldn't have adjusted his role in 76ers yet and he didn't take enough minutes due to various reasons. It is hard to call him a complete NBA player for now. But he will make it one way or another. Potential is there. Ilyasova will probably join the team and his presence will hit the spot at that position for this tournament aswell, as we are very drought at PF.

    Except NBAers, other Turkish players don't make notable impact on their teams and I just can't see them as the integral part of our team. All players will have to try harder when they wear NT jersey if we want to have a good tournament. It is seriously hard to even make a fantasy roster with what we have in general. Thoughts on NT for WC 2019?

    I think Cedi had personally a good season. He ran pick and roll and was used as point forward. Shooting is still very inconsistent but for Fiba he is more than enough until quarter Finals.

    Furk played good minutes after the trade of Butler and he also gained weight. He is still inconsistent in shooting but i am sure he will take an important role and will contribute in WC 19

    Ersan is our cornerstone and a great asset. With the nba core of Cedi, Furkan and Wilbekin our starting five can compete with most of the teams in the wc. We are weak under the rim thats right. We lost the Kanter bros ( Enes and Keren) and i dont count on Ímer Asik anymore. We have to wait for Yurtseven. If he comes we will be competetive against most teams like i said.

    Its not hard at all to form a team. Our starting five will be

    Dogus, Wilbekin, Cedi, Ersan, and Semih Erden.

    Dogus, Wilbekin, Furk, Cedi and Ersan if we want to play pace and space.

    The bench will be taken over by Furk.

    Sinan or Kartal, Melih, Furk, Tolga Gecim and hopefully Yurtseven or Sertac Sanli.



    Japan and Czech should be no problem. Montenegro with Vuc could be hard but we should be stronger. I am not afraid of Greece at all. We are younger, faster longer and stronger than guys like Calathes or Sloukas. Just Giannis (if he comes) is a problem but Kawhi showed us how to stop him. I think quarter Finals are probable and being in the top 8 is enough for us for this time.

    What kahwi leonard showed us is if you are kahwi leonard you can stop Giannis. We dont have him. But I agree our young core can outrun Greece. We have a very strong offensive 5 in Wilbekin Korkmaz Osman Ilyasova and Erden. Or Even replacing Semih with a shooter. But we really need defense. Games are definetely gonna be fun to watch. Our motto used to be dont let opponents to score 70. Now our motto should be at least score 80

    Kawhi is a serious problem nobody would deny it but since giannis cant take midranger you just have to shrink his space to force him take shots. If you double him with Cedi and Ersan it wont be easy for him to accelerate and Ersan probably tries him out in training. Giannis is dangerous when you have great shooter around him and calathes is everything but definitely not a shooter and sloukas is just reliable from the top but he will try to get midranger. You have to stop him there. Its not nba the court is shorter and the game is more different.

    P.S. with Erden you are everything but not fast.

    Furkan Korkmaz is a much, much better player as he was in 2017. No doubt about it, he will take over.

    Bugrahan Tuncer is a very important player for turkish BB, he is clearly better as Ízmizrak, GŘler etc. and if Sarica tolaretes his talent Bugrahan will have an impact on this team for sure. But of course i don┤t trust Sarica.
